- From a mini:
A bottling with a legacy for a reason!
Rich and harmonious, sweet and spicy sherry, floral perfumes, elderflower, chamomile, toffee. Pronounced notes of blackberries, black forest gateau, marzipan, cranberry sauce, some game, antique furniture, sandalwood, hints of coal smoke, engine grease...
Immediate sweet and sour arrival, great strength. Confectionery, red fruits, lots of ripe blackberries, sugared currants, amarena cherries, grape jelly, elderberry syrup.
Grand marnier, bittersweet chocolate, liqorice, menthol, bits of leather... Rather perfect sherried profile, with astounding balance and body.
Medium, chewy, caramel, earthy peat, ashes, resins, bay leaf, almonds and red fruit compote.
Sherry. Cherries, some wood, strawberries, slightly sour, red apples, oranges.
Krischen, seasoning, vanilla, a touch of oak, caramel.
A hint of spiciness is kept briefly, then comes a slightly sour aftertaste.
